If you’ve never experienced it, count yourself lucky: The sickening thud that accompanies a car crash. The days—and sometimes weeks or months—of dealing with doctors and mechanics and insurance adjusters. The sinking feeling that if only you had left a little earlier or put your phone down or turned your headlights on, this might not have happened.

But crashes happen every day in Minnesota — the State Patrol alone has handled over 31,000 so far this year. So it’s important to know what to do immediately after one happens. Our blog will tell you all the steps you should take as soon as a crash happens.
